Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said that the Ministry of Tourism, the Arts and Culture has partnered with various local airlines to make flights affordable to destinations in Malaysia.
The Ministry has made efforts to revitalise the domestic tourist industries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in its partnership with Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Firefly, MASwings, and Malindo Air.
Nancy said this when winding up debate pertaining to her ministry on the motion of thanks to the address of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in the Dewan Negara.
She said the ministry was also conducting the “Jelajah Semarakkan Pelancongan Domestik” which started on June 13.
She said to the ministry that the tourism destinations and products would be promoted in Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Sarawak, Kuala Lumpur, Perlis, and Kedah until the end of that year.
“In addition, this tour series is also used to provide exposure and ensure that industry players comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the National Security Council (MKN).
"Compliance and practice of these new norms can play a key role in building community confidence that Malaysia is a safe destination to visit," she said.
Nancy said that not only the Ministry but also the state government supported the role of the revitalization industry in tourism, arts, and culture.
